The Stars (Al-Najm)
62 verses, revealed in Mecca after Absoluteness (Al-Ikhlaas) before He Frowned ('Abasa)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
CONSIDER this unfolding [of God's message,] as it comes down from on high! (1) Your comrade erreth not, nor is deceived; (2) Neither does he speak of his own will. (3) It is not but a revelation revealed, (4) He was taught by one Mighty in Power, (5) One strong of make. Then he stood straight. (6) While he was in the highest part of the horizon: (7) Then the Spectacle became closer, and came down in full view. (8) until he was as close to him as the distance of two bows, or even less. (9) When He revealed to His votary what He revealed. (10) His heart did not lie of what he saw. (11) what, will you dispute with him what he sees? (12) And assuredly he saw him at another descent. (13) by the Lote-Tree of the Boundary (14) Nigh unto which is the Garden of Abode. (15) when the lote tree was covered in mystic splendour. (16) (Muhammad's) eyes did not deceive him, nor did they lead him to falsehood. (17) Indeed, he saw one of the greatest signs of his Lord. (18) Have you ever thought about al-Lat and al-Uzza, (19) And subsequently the third, the Manat? (20) Are there sons for you, and daughters for Him? (21) that, lo and behold, is an unfair division! (22) They are nothing but some names that you have coined, you and your forefathers Allah has not sent any proof for them; they follow only guesses and their own desires; whereas the guidance from their Lord has come to them. (23) Is the human to have whatever he fancies? (24) So (know that) Allah only is the Owner of all the Hereafter and this world. (25)
